I am grateful to my hon. Friend for his suggestion and am glad to be able to assure him that I have this matter very much in mind. Experience has taught us that merely to produce proposals in a White Paper and put them before the local associations, without any alternative, has led us nowhere. I am indeed anxious to frame proposals, in association with them, which will lead to action and secure the kind of local government which is necessary in Wales for the future.
